Our Wine

We had wine made at a winery near the Swartland town of Riebeeck Kasteel. The wine is available in the Gardens shop and at various select outlets in the Cape Peninsula and Scotland.

River Horse Chenin Blanc 2013

Chenin Blanc sourced from selected Swartland vineyards and fermented using natural yeasts. Pleasing aromas of baked quince, baked apple and spice. The palate has a ripe yellow pear core with a gentle feel and slightly creamy finish. 13% alc.

The Front Row Chenin Blanc 2014

Harvested at 22° balling. Balanced and appealing, this wine shows great purity. Ripe pear/ quince/ golden delicious apple profile. The palate is sleek and refined with a gentle, slightly creamy mid-palate and clean, fresh finish. Rated 4* Platter Guide

The Front Row Shiraz 2014

Harvested at 23.5° balling. The wine spent 12 months in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels. A medium bodied and vibrant wine showing red fruit & curry spice with a hint of tilled earth. A sumptuous, satin core cradled by fine, grainy tannins and balanced acidity. Can be served lightly chilled. Rated 4* Platter Guide
